We thoroughly enjoyed a week in the Hotel Orto De Medici while vsiting my daugher who was studying abroad. It was the perfect location for enjoying the city. Our room was huge with a great shower and a beautiful view of the garden. We enjoyed the breakfast room and peaceful naps on the terrace in late afternoons. I have paid... More

Short wealking distance from downtown, silent street with little traffic. Very nice garden, and hotel-interior. Friendly and helpful managing in the front desk. Some times to little space in the breakfastroom Also missing a couple of chairs in the room. The cleaning of the room was also not so good a few times.

After many weeks of reading and searching, we selected Hotel Orto de Medici, we loved it had a garden room, quiet, very large, huge bathroom with an American shower. Great breakfast, fresh OJ, great Coffee. Walking distance to all the sites. Thank you, hope to see you all again!

Stayed 4 nights in this hotel and it was very good. 10 minute walk from the station and in a great location to walk and see Florence. Florence must be seen by foot, it is very busy in parts but we had a wonderful time. I cannot comment much on the facilities of the hotel because when I take a... More

We stayed 3 nights in a superior room with Balcony, and boy what a balcony it was huge, and lovely to sit out early evening with some Prosecco. The hotel is very nice, breakfast for us was a little disappointing, no hot food or grill, just continental, but it was included in the price, I wouldn't pay extra for it... More

The Otto de'Medici is a lovely small hotel in the middle of everything that is Florence...it even has a bit of history all it's own. When you are there read the history book that is in your room. The hotel has a great staff that is ready to help with reservations, directions and suggestions for activities. Breakfast is provided and... More

My third stay at this hotel is the best ever. It has been more than ten years since I was here as the leader of a group of women who were studying art and culture in Florence.. The gorgeous renovations are lovely and we so appreciated the hot tea in the lobby.. We were kindly upgraded to one of the... More

Walking to this hotel coming from the Santa di Maria Station and walking further and further into the narrow streets at first made me a little worried that maybe we had chosen the wrong hotel for our 4 night stay. However, upon entry, walking straight into the lobby I knew that I was wrong immediately. I looked around for a... More
